If You’re Not Booking This Tour, You’re Doing It Wrong

First timer here. After watching all sorts of shark horror movies growing up, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t get the bubble guts when we first saw the glimmer of sharks in the water beneath us. But the three guides we went with made sure we were safe at all times. I had my 10 year old and as any parent would know, you go into “mom mode” and have this irrational image of Jaws coming up from the depths of hell, but one of the guides, Kama, was so good with her, I had zero reason to worry. The sharks are curious and I was awed to be able to observe them in their home. This was an amazing experience and I highly recommend! If your choosing between open water and cage, choose open water, you won’t regret it. And if your choosing between the other guys and this tour, choose these guys. I saw other boats giving a presentation with flip charts of the sharks whereas this tour made it personal we just had an open conversation. Great job to the three guys who changed my view on sharks! I have a feeling that even if they weren’t fully booked, they would spend their time with the sharks anyways. Mahalo gents!

Not worth the money.

There is absolutely no signage and it was incredibly hard to find the boat. Essentially we had to stop at each boat with people and ask if it was the right boat. Crew did not particularly care about our safety. I heard another swimmer call for a safety swimmer (you had to be escorted back to the boat) three times before anyone paid attention to them. There was no first aid kit on board, at least not that we were shown. There were no life jackets on board, at least not that we were shown. You really only get to be with the sharks for under 20 minutes. Absolutely not worth the money spent. They did take pictures that we got for free, but the majority of the pictures were of the crew themselves, especially the really pretty female, bikini wearing member. There were no shots of me. The camera man actually swam between my family without bothering to take our picture. The crew were nice people.

Such an awesome experience. So glad we decided to do the cage free version of shark diving. Was definitely a much more one on one feel with the sharks. Thanks guys from Caleb in Nevada

Got so close and yet not nervous at all. The sharks were all calm as was everyone else. The crew did a great job. Also, how awesome to not be able to take your camera. They take tons of photos and get them to you for free. I feel sorry for the people that signed up for the shark cage dive. Cage-free is the way to go!
